Baltimore Ravens All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis is out for the season after a MRI showed a complete tear of his right triceps, the team announced on Monday.
Lewis, a 17-year veteran, had 17 tackles in Sunday's 31-29 victory over the Dallas Cowboys before leaving with the injury.
Baltimore is already dealing with losses on defense including cornerback Lardarius Webb, who tore his left ACL and will also miss the entire season. Last season's AP Defensive Player of the Year Terrell Suggs has not practiced with the team due to a torn Achilles and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata has a minor knee injury.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh declined to speculate on Lewis' future, saying that is up to Lewis to decide and comment on.
